Hello to anyone who remembers me

Worked for houlders from 1980-90. Had a great time sailing with, sailed on the Banbury, Hornby grange, joule, Manchester vanguard , Oropesa , abbey and Pacific peace. Can't remember a lot of names of the boys I sailed with but I can remember the great bars in santos and the rest of the s.american coast. Moved offshore in 83 and worked on the high seas driller, uncle John, orelia, baydriller and shelf driller. Happy to catch up with anyone I sailed with.

Hi Mike.
I think I remember you, my name is Leo Hannan and I also worked for Houlder Offshore. Your name is familiar but with old age creeping in the memory is not so good.
Regards

Now I've got you Mike. I ended up as a Scuba Diver Instructor at the club I joined in Newcastle and had some great times.
Well retired now and after 13 years living in Spain have now been back in the UK for 4 years(looking after grandchildren)
Good times were had by all on the HSD and there are quite a few of the guys from Houlder Offshore on this site. What are you up to now?

Regards
